      Hi Roxanna,
      Rincon is about a 2.5 – 3 hour drive from San Juan. The best thing to do is to rent a car to get across the island. There are several name brand agencies you can rent with – on our car rentals page we have a discount code for Budget and Avis. You do not need a passport to travel from the states to Puerto Rico. Let me know if you have any other questions – Thanks!
